Gentrification**Cough** Excuse Me, I Mean “Cumulus”

 

Cumulus_Gallery_Image_5I originally posted on this back in July of 2016 but since then Carmel Partners, the developers of the project, have released new renderings of the major 11.9 acre development at La Cienaga and Jefferson, dubbed Cumulus. The project is comprised of 30 story high rise, the first/only high rise in the area, a 7 story podium building, not sure exactly what that means, and also a grocery store and 100,00 square feet or retail space. Potential tenant would enjoy:

“1210 apartments offering lofty ceilings, oversized windows, full-sized washers and dryer, wood style flooring and high end appliances. The podium features 24-hour concierge service, 3,600 square feet of co-working space, and a 1-acre public park plaza. 100,000 square feet of landscaped courtyards showcase multiple viewing decks and expansive outdoor social areas featuring a resort style pool and spa. A state-of-the-art fitness center features cardio equipment, fitness machines, flat screen televisions, a spin room and yoga studio with Fitness-on-Demand technology. The tower boasts 24-hour concierge service and a roof top deck with multiple seating areas and sweeping view of Los Angeles. A roof top resort style spa is surrounded by daybeds, chaise lounges, and cabanas. The sixth-floor amenity deck features a pool and spa as well as a large indoor-outdoor amenity space with recreational lounges and private event rooms. ”

I don’t believe this was planned with the current residents of the area in mind.  And believe developers were at first trying to sell the area as Culver City.
